200th ACM Prime Plant Produced
LANGENTHAL, Switzerland – Ammann Brazil has reached a milestone with the production of its 200th ACM Prime Asphalt-Mixing Plant.
Manufacture of the continuous, mobile ACM Prime Plants began at the factory in Gravataí, Brazil, seven years ago. The accomplishment was reached quickly, especially when considering the political and economic challenges facing Latin America in that time span – including a major Brazilian corruption case, economic troubles in several other countries in the region and the recent coronavirus pandemic.
“We have reached very important market shares in all Latin American countries and have a quite impressive population in the markets,” said Gilvan Medeiros Pereira, Managing Director of Ammann Brazil. “Considering that we have been operating in adverse scenarios, the production of the 200th Prime Plant is reason for celebration.”
Ammann Brazil overcame the adversity, in part, by providing a superior product with advanced technology. The approach led to increased market share, which helped Prime sales remain strong. The next target for ACM Prime Plants will be to increase its penetration in markets outside Latin America.
The product portfolio now includes the ACM 100 Prime, ACM 140 Prime and ACM 210 Prime. The plants offer production capacities of 100, 140 and 210 tonnes per hour, respectively.
Prime products provide the quality control benefits of a large plant, yet come in a small, mobile package. Their compact arrangement ensures an entire plant fits on one or two chassis, making relocation easy and efficient.
Plug-in components reduce costs and speed setup. The plants’ design and continuous flow also ensure productivity upon arrival.
The plants are known for exceptional quality, particularly impressive given their mobility. They can incorporate high percentages of recycled asphalt, a task that is beyond the capability of many mobile plants.
